so the equation hmmm is this x+5(x+2)=202 now a little math x+5x+10=202 and hmm 6x=192 and x=32 and x+2 is 34 even number has spaces of 2 so i used x+2. Uh yeah whooooo! hows that babe ;)

n; n+2 - two consecutive even integers

n + 5(n + 2) = 202

n + 5n + 10 = 202

6n + 10 = 202      |subtract 10 from both sides

6n = 192      |divide both sides by 6

n = 32
